Autumn Colours by Samantha Read


Hello! This week I'm celebrating autumn with falling leaves, glistening berries and a cute hedgehog. I love September and so enjoy my walks in the countryside with Poppy, there is an abundance of berries this year and the leaves will soon be their glorious gold and reds.

What I did

I began with the MDF square panel and gave it a couple of coats of white gesso, just to keep the colours bright and true. Then I blended the Multi Surface Paints till I was happy with how they were. I used a stencil to add some cloud details and then stamped the leaf background directly on to the panel. I treated the grey board berries the same but added Glossy Accents to make them shiny.

The leaves were stamped on to white card which had been sprayed with matt sprays and then cut out. The hedgehog was also stamped on to white card but I coloured him with watercolour paints and added glossy accents on his nose. I used a white posca pen to add highlights to the leaves and the text was a random alphabet set in my supplies.
